During my residency at the V&A I aim to research 17th-19th-century porcelain collections and learn more about specific functions of objects. I would like to further my research into the historical context so I have a better understanding of why these objects existed and how they might have been used. My main focus of the residency at the V&A is to develop new forms and strengthen my collections. In recent months I have invested a lot of time in my glaze/research and feel I am more advanced with this. However I will continue to deconstruct hand-painted imagery on the historical wares as this is still an area of interest, in particular use the V&A collections to research condiment sets, centre pieces and grouped objects. I plan to experiment with new throwing construction methods; cutting, joining, lidded vessels and produce larger scale pieces. I would like to use the residency to explore ways of moving away from batch production to one-off pieces (but still rooted in tableware).
